My Name is Therese and I have lived in New Your City for the past 25 years. I have worked doing hair and make up for film and television and just LOVE New York. My work has given me the privilege of traveling and working all over the U.S. as well as all over the World and NO PLace compares to Manhattan New York. Living just steps from Central Park is an added plus because it is like having the best and biggest back yard ever just without all of the weeding. You can never be bored or uninspired here,

Theatre, restaurants,Museums, are all just steps away. The energy and people here are addictive and I hope you will find it as enjoyable and contagious as I have.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

This building was the Former Gimble Mansion and is quite special.

Each unit is Unique filled with Old New York Charm.... only restored and renovated

with modern day amenities .

UWSIDE GREAT

  • 4 of 5
We , two couples, had a great time in NY for ten days. Our apartment was spacious and provided all we had imagined from the photos. This included great soft beds , that had me still looking for the pea under mattress after 5 days.
In late summer the deck was a night time asset for relaxed dinners.
Close supplies for life essentials , close x2 subway lines and Central Park , and your in New York,
What's not to love!

CLUTTERED AND IMPRACTICAL

  • 2 of 5
This could be a great apartment - but it isn't. It's a storage space for the owner's antiques and other belongings. The location can't be beat - a block from Central Park, subway, bus and grocery. A/C and laundry worked great. Therese was very responsive to a few minor problems. But - there is virtually no shelf, drawer, or surface space that isn't already filled with "stuff", mostly just clutter. The master BR is crowded with the crib, exercise bike and large chest that are useless and bulky, and make it impossible to enjoy the beautiful window seat. We ended up using the crib as a dresser since there was no where else to put things. One amoire has plenty of hanging space; the other is filled with linens & is difficult to open and close. The second BR closet has shelves, but they are stuffed with Christmas ornaments. The rest of the apartment is filled with knick knacks that just take up space. The LR TV is in an alcove where it is awkward to watch. The outside deck is wonderful, but crowded with cracked flower pots, and the table has so many missing tiles it is hard to find a level surface to set things. The large antique pieces in every room make the space seem smaller. The kitchen is a narrow pathway on the way to the master BR, but is well equipped. It's a shame that such potential isn't being realized.

Owner's Response: Thank You for pointing out that this is a great apartment & that the location "can't be beat", that the A/C and Laundry worked "great", that the apartment is furnished with fine furniture and NOT items from IKEA, however you did fail to mention that you requested the name of our mattress since your husband said it was the most comfortable bed he ever slept on. I am also thrilled that you felt I was very responsive to your needs, although if that were true why wouldn't you say something while you were here rather than write these complaints (we could have easily removed the crib or elliptical or any other item to make your stay more comfortable). That is an elliptical machine by the way not a Bike as you posted, but both the elliptical machine and crib were bought due to requests from previous guests. Some families using VRBO have small children and need a crib and some like to work out and there is no gym in the building. Our Antiques add to the charm of this apartment & our guests appreciate fine furniture.The Knick Knacks are items from my travels around the world when I was doing hair & Makeup for Films, I feel that also adds to the charm. If previous tenants left broken items such as the outside area as you mentioned that will get repaired or replaced quickly. Our pictures are recent & accurate on the VRBO website and your comments in this post mirror every description written on our VRBO website as well, so I feel as if we are in sync there. We do have a galley kitchen and it is well equipped, We do have antiques and not cheap furnishings, We do have central air, comfortable beds, GREAT Location, we do have an outside terrace with table & Chairs, We do have a mahogany crib & an elliptical machine, we do have a washing machine & Dryer, we do have plenty of towels & linens. My only discrepancy to your comments is that I feel we DO have an apartment full of charm & personality, and all YOU see it as, is clutter. This is a VRBO listing not Hotels-com so if the personality of a new York City Apartment did not suit you, you may want to stay in an empty hotel room rather than attempt to live like a local the next time you visit Manhattan. This apartment has been listed with VRBO since 2008 and has been booked nearly 90% throughout it's entirety yet this is only the second dissatisfied review we have received. I guess that is proof that you can't please all of the people all of the time, and you can't always make everyone happy, but we will continue to try :)

SUZIE FROM CALIFORNIA

  • 5 of 5
I recently returned from a week's stay at this apartment in the Upper West Side. It is a spacious apartment that was comfortable, inviting, and perfect for our family of four. The living room is well decorated and the kitchen is well stocked with plates, pot and pans and a great coffee maker. The weather was a bit on the humid side, so the air conditioning was fantastic. The deck was also very pleasant, especially in the evening. I found the owner, Therese, to be very helpful and concerned that we had everything we needed. She was easy to get a hold of and very attentive to any questions we had. Having such a beautiful and well located apartment in the Upper West Side made this a wonderful family vacation in NYC. We also enjoyed being so close to the subway station and to Central Park. It is very close to the Jackie Onassis Reservoir which has a great jogging path. Also, there are fabulous restaurants close by. If we return to NYC, we hope we can stay at this apartment again.

A VERY DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE COMPARED TO MANY OTHER VRBO HOMES WHICH WE HAVE PREVIOUSLY RENTED.

  • 1 of 5
The most disturbing part of our experience was the fact that, when the landlord finally returned our calls about problems with the apartment (after several phone messages and E-mails) she yelled at us over the phone and took absolutely no responsibility for her behavior. She had said, "Call me any time", which we did, but she only returned our calls when we left a message saying that we would be writing a negative review on VRBO.

Since this apartment was listed as suitable for ages 55+, we were surprised to learn (two days before we arrived) that this is a third floor walk up. There was no heat, and although the owner said the super would take care if this, it was three days before he arrived and told us that the heat would not be coming on. By that time, fortunately, the weather had warmed up.

Both bedrooms had way too much furniture, and the armoire in the master bedroom started to fall on us when we opened it to put in our clothes. We managed to push it back up, then noticed a block of wood on the floor next to the armoire, which had been propping it up. We replaced the block of wood so that the armoire would not fall on us again.

The master bedroom was crammed with furniture, a crib, an exercise bike, and a cedar chest which blocked the use of the window seat and made it very difficult to open and close the windows. In the smaller bedroom, our friend had to turn sideways in order to walk between the dresser and the bed (he is not overweight). The photos of both bedrooms do not accurately reflect the apartment's appearance.

We are giving this rental one star because it is in a good location.

We definitely would not recommend renting this property.

Owner's Response: Sue
Let me start by saying we have been renting on VRBO since 2008 and have NEVER had a negative comment. Actually we remain friendly with many of the people who have stayed here, some have even enquired on where to buy the beds we have since they are the most comfortable they have ever had at a rental home.
I find most of your comments false and so does our Super; Jimmy who was at your beck and call from the moment you arrived. First of all I did call you back EVERY time you called, I finally put you directly in touch with our Super since I was traveling out of NY at the time of your visit and you seemed to have many specific and special needs. You never asked what the floor to this apartment was on and it no secret this is a walk up since it is a townhouse and NOT a high-rise. The heat for the building is run from a boiler in the basement and supports all 8 apartments. The Heat was on the whole time that is the LAW you are lying by saying there was NO heat that is just preposterous. You told me you were traveling with one older person and one who was recovering from and illness and they were in need of a very hot apartment but you yourself were comfortable, I offered to send jimmy to get you a space heater, since someone was recovering from an illness I was concerned. The master bedroom has a king bed, crib and elliptical machine in it because it is a huge room especially for New York standards and as far as the dresser, it is an antique.. if it is broke it will be taken care of. As for opening the window, If you were so cold and there was NO heat why would you need to open any windows? Your phone messages and texts messages do not match this review. You LOVED the apartment when you were there. My only thought is after speaking to our Super who ran himself ragged trying to please you being your personal assistant is that you may have been better off staying at a 4 star hotel where you are given a hands on concierge service in assisting to help make the three different personalities with different needs comfortable and happy, especially if one is recovering from a serious illness and one is elderly. I am glad however you liked the location and that you were able to see something positive during your trip to New York.

NEW YORK OASIS

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Therese's centrally located apartment and immediately felt at home. While the rooms are elegantly furnished it is a very comfortable place with huge inviting couches and mattresses that are like sleeping on clouds. The kitchen is practical and it was a bonus after being on the road for four weeks prior to New York to have access to a washer and dryer.

The location is amazing with a short walk to Central Park as well as easy access to the subway. Restaurants in the area are plentiful and there is also a supermarket close by.

A fantastic place to holiday.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE UPPER WEST SIDE 2+1 ROOMS 2-BATHS LUXURY CONDO STEPS TO CENTRAL PARK AND SUBWAY

  • 5 of 5
My experience at Therese's condo has been superb and I can undoubtedly recommend this incredibly spacious unit to anyone looking to rent a 2-bathroom 3-room condo (2 bedrooms + sofa bed in huge living room) in a fantastic location in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Staying here for a long week-end, I felt what's like to be a New Yorker. It feels good! The neighborhood has anything you may need at any price point, lots of shops and dining. It is safe, friendly, located steps from the J Onassis reservoir in Central Park where I enjoyed jogging with sublime views of the skyline.
We were 4 people and had plenty of room. The deck is a plus! The condo is just as described, AC works great and it’s central, another plus. The unit was very clean and has lots of personal touches and decoration, including beautiful bronze statues.
Communication with Therese was easy and she was very flexible with check-in and check-out times, thank you. I hope to come back!
